The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington congratulate President-elect Joe Biden on his victory in the 2020 presidential election. American citizens came out in record numbers to participate in our democracy and their voices have been heard and counted. We further congratulate Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on her historic victory as the first woman, black person, and person of South Asian descent to be elected to the office of Vice President. We pray they will lead our country with compassion, justice, and wisdom.
We look forward to working with all of our local and national elected leaders to enact policies that support the most vulnerable in our communities, ensure justice and equity for all, combat antisemitism, and continue to maintain a strong, bipartisan U.S.-Israel relationship.
